Eloqua Integration Overview

Contentstack’s Experience Extensions offer a variety of ways to integrate third-party applications, such as MonkeyLearn, directly into your headless CMS. With the Eloqua Experience Extension, you can select different types of marketing forms as a custom field in an entry, without the inconvenience of leaving your CMS.

Using a Contentstack Custom Field, you can embed and display Eloqua forms directly into the CMS environment. This field displays marketing forms such as basic, minimal, and detailed in a custom field from which users can select. Based on the selection, the form will be rendered on the presentation layer using the form details from the entry.
